“Proterra commends Senate President pro Tempore Kevin de León for his leadership in advancing California’s greenhouse gas emission goals. Senator De León’s support of zero-emission public transit buses ensures that all California residents have the opportunity to ride and commute by electric vehicle and realize the health and other associated benefits.

Tom Steyer

“I join a generation of California business leaders and job creators in applauding Senate President Kevin de León and his colleagues for introducing landmark legislation to ensure California is reaching higher and building on its global leadership in meeting the climate challenge. These are achievable policy proposals that will create good-paying green jobs here in California, mitigate the impact of climate change, and leave a cleaner, safer, more stable world for the next generation.

Mayor Eric Garcetti

"Senate President pro Tem Kevin de León is showing real leadership with this proposal. Reducing carbon pollution is a top priority for Los Angeles, and I look forward to working with the Senator to advance the state's greenhouse gas reduction goals in ways that will benefit our environment, our economy and our most at-risk residents."
